any special reason why you want to go for a legacy lens?

probably easier to source an FA 50. same focal length, same max aperture, AF and similar construction. IQ should be similar as well.

I got my F 50 1.4 from PentaxForum B/S last week at USD270+shippingUSD39, pay to Paypal S$427.
I have A 50 1.7, cant tell the different between them as im new in this hobby.
Give up manual focus for A, why F n not FA purely curious lah.

WOW F50 1.4 at USD 270. It's a good deal. I was thinking it should be costing more towards USD 300 onwards.

A is manual lens. F is 1st generation Autofocus lens. FA is the next generation AF lens.

Just get the FA50/1.4
Unless you are hunting for exotics or paying much less for the F version.

Optically, they are similar.

why much less? generally F is better built than FA.
the barrel inside F is mental. FA is actually later cost-down version with more plastic parts.
